download and play are considered the same event. download count is defined as one event, per item, per day, per IP address. repeated plays or downloads the same day are not counted.

I'm using the plug-in "Counterize" on my Wordpress site. The site points to files located at IA. For a file in which there is light interest, what IA shows for downloads and what Counterize shows will be within 10 or 20 percent of each other. For a file that's popular those numbers get quickly out of whack. In one case IA shows 79 downloads and Counterize 603. The IA download # should be treated as an indicator of activity but not as a true count.
